90% of birth prep is training your mind. That's why I teach childbirth education like no one else. 

Elevated Birth combines the best elements of The Bradley Method, Lamaze, and Hypnobirthing to bring you the exact birth prep you need for both the "Plan A" and the "what-ifs." You will receive a solid foundation and clear understanding of the physiological birth process. This knowledge will help you to weigh all of the options available for your pregnancy and birth, and make informed choices that are best for you and your family. You'll receive encouraging and compassionate support as you navigate the various emotions related to the pregnancy, birth, and postpartum process. You'll be engaged through a variety of teaching methods, with activities meant to reach everyone. It is meant for any expecting family, whether you plan to give birth at a hospital, birth center, or home birth.


You will learn...

  • How to Prepare Your Body for Birth

  • The Anatomy and Physiology of Birth

  • Understanding the Labor Process

  • Your Birth Plan Options

  • How to Self-Advocate

  • Labor Comfort Measures

  • Breathing & Mindset Techniques
